What do I need to bring to swim lessons?

Your swimmer will need a snug swimsuit, goggles and a towel. If your child has long hair it is helpful for them to wear a swim cap or have their hair tied back. For our Parent Tadpole class your child will need to be double diapered. Parents can purchase swim diapers, goggles, and swim caps at Flying Fish.

Can I sit on deck to watch my swimmers have their lesson?

While being near a parent can be comforting at first; our experience shows that having a parent nearby can lead to a distracted swim lesson. Our observation area provides each parent an excellent view of their swimmer.
